A “Nu(tella)” Way to Make Blueberry Turnovers

This sweet treat is sure to be a family favorite! This sweet treat is sure to be a family favorite! I must confess, I got a little bit obsessed with the pre-made crescent roll dough! There are so many possibilities! This time I went for a tasty and sweet creation. My favorite desserts almost always have chocolate and if it's Nutella even better! So I created these with Nutella. I added the blueberries as an extra element to contrast with the Nutella flavor and it was indeed a contrasting and surprising flavor but still very tasty. I think they go together perfect. My kids helped me out with this one. They enjoyed helping with the Nutella spread, placing the blueberries on each turnover, folding them and sealing them with the fork. Turns out there is a lot they could do in this one, so get your kids to help, you know they'll love it!

1 8oz tube of pre-made crescent roll dough
4 tablespoons of Nutella
1 cup of blueberries
1 tablespoon of butter
2 tablespoons of Nutella for decoration
Parchment paper

1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into the pre-cut 8 triangles. Place them over a sheet of parchment on an oven tray.

2. Cut each triangle in 2 leaving you with 16 triangles total.

3. Scoop a little bit of Nutella into half of each triangle of dough, a thin layer will be more than enough!

4. Then add some blueberries, 3 or 4 is good, don't put too many. Fold the triangles so they are all covered. Press on the sides with a fork to sear all sides. Some of them will have Nutella overflowing but this is ok.

5. Add a thin layer of butter to the top of each turnover. Bake for 12 minutes. Meanwhile heat 2 tablespoons of Nutella in a double-broiler until soft.

6. Take the turnovers out of the oven. Decorate the turnovers with twirls of Nutella, just grab a spoon and softly pour over the turnovers making curves. Eat immediately!
